Question

- Suppose scientists were researching a fox having white fur in a
large number of foxes. For the individual fox, suppose that the
probability a fox has white fur is 25%.
- What is the probability that at most 4 foxes need to be researched until the first fox with white fur is found?
- What is the probability that at most 4 foxes need to be researched until the third fox with white fur is found?

Answer #1

a) Let X denotes the number of foxes need to be researched until the first fox with white fur is found.

X ~ Geometric(p = 0.25)

The probability mass function of X is

Now,

The probability that at most 4 foxes need to be researched until the first fox with white fur is found

b) Let Y denotes the number of foxes need to be researched until the third fox with white fur is found.

Y ~ Negative Binomial(r = 3, p = 0.25)

The probability mass function of Y is

Now,

The probability that at most 4 foxes need to be researched until the third fox with white fur is found

A consensus forecast is the average of a large number
of individual analysts' forecasts. Suppose the individual forecasts
for a particular interest rate are normally distributed with a mean
of 6 percent and a standard deviation of 1.3 percent. A single
analyst is randomly selected. Find the probability that his/her
forecast is
(a) At least 3.6 percent. (Round the z
value to 2 decimal places. Round your answer to 4 decimal
places.)
(b) At most 8 percent. (Round the z...

An automatic welder is used to join a large number of tubes in
a heat exchanger assembly. Each weld is inspected, and most of them
are satisfactory. However, some need repair by a re-machining and
re-welding process. In a sample of 65 qualification welds, eight
were found to require the repair process.
Perform the appropriate hypothesis test to determine whether
there is evidence that the repair probability differs from
10%.

Having some trouble with my case studies.
Case Study 3
Acute Care Mrs Fox
Case Scenario: Acute Care
Mrs. Fox, a 40-year-old wife and mother of 2, was involved in a
massive motor vehicle accident on the Sawmill Parkway in which her
car struck the center divider and flipped twice. A good Samaritan
immediately dialed 911. First responders found the patient
unconscious with severe injuries but were able to safely transport
her to St. John’s Riverside Hospital. Upon arrival at...

The American Red Cross was founded in 1881, blood types were
first identified in 1901 but the first blood bank in the United
States was not established until 1932. The blood type distribution
in the U.S. is type A: 40%, type B: 10%, type AB: 4%, type O: 46%.
Some of the first large-scale use of blood transfusions was to save
the lives of the injured during World War II. At that time errors
in matching the donors blood with...

The mayor of a large U.S. city has a 35% favorability rating.
This means 35% of the people in the city believe he is doing a good
job. Suppose we randomly select citizen subjects from the city, one
by one, and ask if the mayor is doing a good job. Let X equal the
number of unfavorable ratings we get until we get our first
favorable rating. Let Y equal the number of unfavorable ratings we
encounter until we get...

1) In cattle, there is no dominance between the alleles for red
coat (W) and white coat (c). The heterozygote is intermediate or
"roan" in color.
a) Give the genotypic and phenotypic ratios to be expected
following a mating between two roan animals.
b) What are the expected genotypic and phenotypic ratios from a
cross between a roan animal and a white one?
2) In cattle, the hornless condition (H) is dominant to that for
the possession of horns (h)....

Despite her adversities and difficulties, Mrs. Fox did extremely
well at Helen Hayes Hospital. She displayed only mild impairments
to short-term memory, was able to functionally communicate with
others, and regained most of the function of her right upper
extremity. Furthermore, she learned how to use her prosthetic limb
to walk again without the use of an assistive device.
Mrs. Fox was finally able to return to her home in Stony Point.
She was elated to see her family and...

One of the large photocopiers used by a printing company has a
number of special functions unique to that particular model. This
photocopier generally performs well but, because of the complexity
of its design and the frequency of usage, it occasionally breaks
down. The department has kept records of the number of breakdowns
per month over the last fifty months. The data is summarized in the
table below:
Number of Breakdowns

1. An automobile manufacturer has determined that 33% of all gas
tanks that were installed on its 2015 compact model are defective.
If 16 of these cars are independently sampled, what is the
probability that at least 6 of the sample need new gas tanks?
2. Use the Poisson Distribution Formula to find the indicated
probability: Last winter, the number of potholes that appeared on a
9.0-mile stretch of a particular road followed a Poisson
distribution with a mean of...
